Lenovo announced the incredibly affordable Lemon 3 smartphone in January. The budget smartphone was Lenovo’s answer to Xiaomi’s Redmi 3 and to be honest, the company did a great job incorporating mid-range specs inside the device. However, up till now, the Lemon 3 smartphone was only available in China.
But that’s going to change soon, as Lenovo India has just released a new teaser via its official twitter account which hints at the launch of the Lemon 3 International variant at MWC 2016. Given that Lenovo India is the first one to tease the release, we can be sure that the phone will be available for purchase in India sometime after MWC.

It’s not confirmed whether Lenovo will use the Chinese name, Lemon 3 for the international variant. So, we could expect some catchy name to suit the global market. Apart from India, the Lemon 3 international variant could also end up in some markets in Europe, since it’s being showcased at MWC in Barcelona, Spain.
As for the specs, Lenovo Lemon 3 is a value for money device, bringing mid-range hardware in the budget price segment. The metal body further improves the overall looks of the phone, giving it an edge over its plastic competitors. With Snapdragon 616 under the hood, $100 price tag and FHD display, the Lemon 3 International variant could turn out to be yet another popular smartphone for the company. The Lenovo K4 Note has got its fair share of attention in India, selling over 180,000 units in a matter of one month. Now, it could be the time for Lemon 3 to shine in the Indian market.
